Flu Information Center
Follow these tips to stay flu free this season!
1. Get your flu shot.
St. Joseph offers seasonal flu vaccinations. This service often doesn't require an appointment and there are 15 locations across the Brazos Valley where you can get a flu shot.

2. Practice flu prevention.
Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water vigorously for 15-20 seconds - or hand sanitizer works great. Cover your cough or sneeze. If you don't have a tissue, cover your cough/sneeze with your sleeve.

3. See us when you start to feel bad.
We encourage you to come in within 48 hours of when your symptoms present so that treatment can begin, if necessary. With 15 clinic locations, we can get you in to see a doctor quickly!

Everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine as soon as vaccine is available. Flu is unpredictable! For more information about seasonal flu, visit the Centers for Disease Control.

Proper handwashing techniques
Clean hands prevent infections. Keeping hands clean prevents illness at home, at school, and at work. Hand hygiene practices are key prevention tools in healthcare settings, in daycare facilities, in schools and public institutions, and for the safety of our food. At home, handwashing can prevent infection and illness from spreading from family member to family member and, sometimes, throughout a community. In the home, the basic rule is to wash hands before preparing food and after handling uncooked meat and poultry, before eating, after changing diapers, after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one's nose into a tissue, and after using the bathroom.
